2:33 pm
realize the great programs we have. and as your proclamation points out it was started basically because mother's have to go to work during the war and this is the first time that childcare was an issue. and many of the programs that started 70 years ago are not around any more. eventually we got state funding to support it further. i'm honored to see the transition of that program and for the longest, long time time to have the education program involved with the district.
2:34 pm
if i look at the school districts website the only school district is that actually says prek to 12 not k to 12. it was only able to happen because of the staff that put in the effort. so i'm really glad and i wish you were co-author of this. i am proud we have this in our city to represent our city for the young kids. thank you very much for the work that you guys do.

academic high school and which at that time was a low income high crime county. and marshall high school was set up for black and latin use to succeed in high school and slowly that population has been squeezed out of that school. that school was a preschool. i think there needs to be a look at marshall high school and we need to ask ourselves what's going on over there how many our black people and latin are not being served thank you, very much. . next speaker
2:42 pm
>> good afternoon supervisor stop corporate rape of our library. private shut up of our community and perhaps because of the public library has began to make our information public. a discretionary fund and these funds are budgeted at $65,000 yes and no and the library expand this amount. this is the extend detail and he spends it on the undefined
2:43 pm
business expense. this may be one explanations why there is an over flow of spending funds ridiculously. the bigger request is why the forensics are not allowed - are allowed to continue with no oversight from the board of supervisors. the private fundraisers always assume they can harass the critics to exploring the truth. it is certainly why i was arrested at a board of supervisors meeting in order to protect the friends. having me arrested does not solve societies problem and
2:44 pm
cover the lies >> next speaker. >> members of the board of supervisors on the screen i have a quote from andre canning geoif i could get it up on the screen. we kind of had - as i get older i pay less attention to what men say i watch what they do. i pay attention to the board of supervisors what you actually do. this board of supervisors attitude about public participation in government i have no problem of labeling it
2:45 pm
hostile. look at the public comment. at january it took four hours for the general public to get a chance to speak and here today comes after 35 minutes. to members of public have to make a minimum commitment of half a day. this shows what you care about. especially, when public talks you get up and talk to each other and many of you leaves the room. we wouldn't not all of those nice people while dissenting comments are made. they then there's restrictions
2:46 pm
on free speech. and at no time in the handling of any members do the public get to speak to this board of supervisors before you take final action. >> thank you next speaker. >> good afternoon supervisors i'm peter executive director of library users association. last month library you areers association won a case at the sunshine task force. the majority of members there void that the arts commission had unlawfully withheld information it was to keep us
2:47 pm
from getting our rights serviced. but that win of 4 to 3 was not enough to overcome what the board of supervisors did to make sure it won't be enough for an action to be taken. you essentially replaced all members and we won 4 to 3 and additionally you passed the sunshine ordinance with new members to repeal it's rule that the majority could take the decision on instead of requiring
2:48 pm
6 votes. so only 7 people on the board were there and that was a couple of votes against us. your sabotage of open government sadly is bearing fruit. >> next speaker and thanks supervisors i'm an attorney, an mba that has been long associated with this city but i've got some positive comments to make. this poem reflects the poem encourage - i co-founded the

poetry fountains and we have a public service to get you poems from the movement we'll have on public event to encourage education in february. this is the confession and it is like honest i didn't and this is for you the board of supervisors san francisco. our legislative lady of mieshlz flies open where crime and

punishment are perpetual and infinity and the fear of death becomes a judgment beyond reason, a guilty class of desire as arbitrary as spawning yet in memory of our ancestors all in the same humble family our human breath rises to palms and there is no love that bypassess this love >> thank you next speaker. >> come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away, just save the

2:53 pm
>> good afternoon board of supervisors. the 49ers did not detective beat in my opinion they were beat by bad luck and it was caused by a an dead man. joseph is tired of waiting for justice and i can the have you do god in new orleans decided that was long enough and what convinced me it was the famous blackout base that was supernatural. so if anyone is going to be blamed for the 49ers loss it was the curse. so if mayor lee continues to
2:54 pm
ignore the dead man's curse it may take harvey to come back and lead us to the city hauls. this guy may not be a -- he was a gay city employee who died at the general hospital. i want to dare the board of supervisors to issue a statement about how much child porn is inside the computer in the city. i have to say i hope shawn

10 billions of projects. i must commend a few people that attended the ethic committee on the laws of land our ethic commission has all kinds of excused and part of that investigation part of that hiding the things under the carpet comes from this board of supervisors. some of you last night in chinatown we see wheeling and dealing with people who are very corrupt and i folks knowing very

of the supervisors. and supervisor pass away at the age of 66 and in this line of work all of us have differences of opinion but sometimes those differences there are a lot of commonality. and one thing i'll say about supervisor ackerman >> during her 10 years our district was improved by this supervisor. and, in fact, after undercover widespread corruption she was able to
